It is an Edward I penny (also called a sterling) made out of silver, its weight is 1.42g and was made from 1272-1307 AD but there is something wrong with because on the back the cross ,12 dots ,the inner circle and writing are supposed to be sticking outward not inward.Here is a photo:





A coin of this quality is around 150 $ though the back error may either be a mintage error or signs of reproduction. Mintage error could augment the price, reproduction could lower it.

The dots are raised, not lowered - that's just an optical illusion, caused by light from the scanner coming from the opposite direction. Just like the apparent doubling is no doubt also caused by the scanner.

I always find classifying the numerous varieties of Edward I pennies tricky. The one 10xloupe linked to is a different variety, because on there the letter "N" is always backwards. I looked this one up last night but had trouble pinning it down to a specific class.

Thanks guys for looking into this.
Tricky is the right word! And yes the scanner is to blame :(

This is what I can make out.

EDW? ANGL DNS HYB
CIVITAS LONDON

Trifoliate Crown - I think.

Which points to Edward I.
But which class?

Hopefully this piccy will help

I don't know why it is with English hammered pennies of this period. About 10% of the pictures I see of these coins I perceive them incuse, not relief. The easiest way I have of curing this problem is to turn the picture upside down, hard to do with a computer screen!
